Pipeline Balancing Withdrawal Unavailable

Wednesday, March 10, 2021

Pipeline balancing services are provided on California Gas Transmission's system by an allocated 5.0 Bcf of storage inventory, 200 MMcf/d of injection capacity, and 300 MMcf/d of withdrawal capacity. The current inventory of Imbalance Gas in Storage can be found on the Pipe Ranger Operations page.

Recent under-deliveries by suppliers have decreased Imbalance Gas in Storage to 0 Bcf. This will cause a suspension of pipeline balancing withdrawal.

Without the ability to withdraw for balancing, the likelihood of low inventory OFOs increases.

What can shippers do to help avoid low inventory OFOs?

  • Balance supply and demand daily. Work to ensure that supplies brought in for your customers balance with their daily demands.
  • Keep an eye on the System Inventory Status information posted on Pipe Ranger.

Please call your CGT Representative if you have questions.
